DIGGING DEEPER for high-level thinking…
ARTIFACTS…  What types of artwork do you like best?  Jason Emmons, an Indiana Artisan, carves huge pieces of wood into custom sculptures.  Are there any Indiana Artisans in your county?  Try following the steps to make your own soap carving!  We’d love to post photos of your sculpture on our E-Billboard.
HEALTHY HOOSIERS = Indiana’s future…
GET MOVING!… Outdoor winter activities can be such good exercise and time for family fun!  Who knew we could go snow skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing right at home in Indiana?  You can find the answers on how to get started at these helpful websites:
CORE CONNECTIONS for Extended Learning…
LANGUAGE ARTS: At Shotz they play mini-golf under special lights that change the way we see colors.  Think about something that glows in the dark.  What are some good words you can use to describe it?  Write a story about a time you had fun with something that glows.  

SOCIAL STUDIES: Have you ever been to the circus?  Which type of acts do you like the best?  Indiana has been the home to many traveling circus acts through its history.  Ed Ballard, the man who built West Baden Resort in French Lick, was a partner in five circus companies.  What would be some of the jobs that would have to be done to make a circus happen?

SCIENCE: Big Splash Adventure uses a new type of water filter called the ‘Defender’.  They also use ultraviolet light to purify the water, so fewer chemicals are needed to keep it safe and clean.  How is the water in your community kept clean for daily use?
MATHEMATICS: The Junior carts at French Lick West Baden Indoor Karting can reach speeds of 20 miles per hour.  If you drive the cart for 30 minutes at full speed, how far will you have gone?
